Aheila's Drabble Day! She will be taking a break for a while so she chose the theme of “disappear” this week. What will I do next week? Guess I'll figure it out later. For now, here's my drabble.

Let Me Disappear
I hear them in their desperate
Search. They shout my name,
I answer not. I need
This bit of respite.

My head is aching. They can
Do without me for
A few minutes more.
My sweet haven.

I’ve disappeared.
I close my eyes,
Feel the breeze,
Hear the birds,
Smell the fresh cut grass,
And sigh.

“Mom! There you are!”
I press a finger to my lips.
He smiles and joins me
Outside in the sun.

Semi peace with one 
is better than none.

Sweet ! You don't want to REALLY disappear ... you just need a few moments of peace & silence , where you can hear the sound of your own thoughts ... for a short while ! :)

LOL - oh how nice it would be to disappear sometimes. I really do, DO this, close my eyes, ignore the calls. lol. Very cute.

That's beautiful! I've always written poetry (whether it's good or I'm not really sure) but I really love this!
